The SpaceX #CRS-11 mission patch is a nice nod to CRS-4 patch, the mission that first flew this Dragon capsule. ♻

Launch day forecast still 70% "go" for F9/Dragon liftoff from KSC at 5:55pm ET. Concerns:  Anvil/Cumulus Cloud Rules #CRS11

Raining now with thunderstorm.   Everything right now is pushing from the southwest to the northeast.  Waiting for seabreeze to start pushing this stuff inland.

And to note... this is a dying storm right now.

Phase II lightning @ SLF. Lots of storms firing off along the sea breeze just inland.
